It was a great company to work for... As time goes by

Senior Management (Former Employee)
London, England

I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 8 years

ProsI spent almost a decade with this company and it was a great place to. Juniper has the ability to develop great products and being visionary at the same time.
- Career opportunity
- excellent people
- reasonable salary
- excellent reputation
- always challenging (and thus never boring)

ConsWell, we all know that A-People hire A-People and B-People hire C-People. Unfortunately there was a time when some B-People moved into management position and that is where the dilemma started...
There are many excellent leaders in Juniper but in some geographical regions it is no fun to work for Juniper as there are still some people on board with room for improvement of their personal skills.

Advice to Senior ManagementNo advice, most of them know what they are doing and they are excellent. For the others it is useless to give any advice...

Yes, I would recommend this company to a friend

So much potential, but they are flat-lining

Sales (Former Employee)

I worked at Juniper Networks full-time for more than a year

ProsLong Hours, but flexibility.
Great Technical teams
Majority of product is technically very good
Loyal Customer base

ConsFrantic cost cutting, so no marketing or expenditure
Want growth, but don't want to invest to achieve
Yearly, sometimes twice yearly culls, very de-motivational
challenging to get new business in with no investment, may as well work for a start up with no resources.

Advice to Senior ManagementStop paying lip service and politicking.

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

Busy place experiencing growing pains, questionable quality at VP level, failure to deliver is too readily acceptable

Advice to Senior ManagementMake the snior management accountable, have consequences for not delivering, more skip interviews and 360s

A great company to work for, what could be better than making a difference in a company that's making a difference?

Senior Product Marketing Manager (Current Employee)

I have been working at Juniper Networks

ProsMaking a difference in a company that's making a difference. Lots of change means lots of opportunities to influence and contribute in a positive way. Juniper also has a strong programme of product development in both the Service Provider and Enterprise markets which means you are very unlikely to get stuck in a rut. We also have a very good benefits package - which just adds the cherry on the top of the job satisfaction icing. A nice mix of work/life balance with manageable travel.

ConsYou have to be prepared to accept continual change which might be hard for some people, but if that's what you like you'll get it in abundance at Juniper!

Advice to Senior ManagementKeep it up!

Job cuts, Job cuts & More Job cuts

Bangalore (India)

I have been working at Juniper Networks full-time for more than 5 years

ProsWork life balance, Environment used to be very healthy, nice people

Conslately with so many Job cuts, employees are not able to concentrate on work at all...Company has bowed to investors and firing people despite amazing quarterly results

Advice to Senior ManagementPlease try to save the company...Investors will move away in 2 years...Company will not be able to survive without good employees which are being thrown out..

No, I would not recommend this company to a friend – I'm not optimistic about the outlook for this company

6 years of bliss - 4 years of constant churn

Anonymous Employee (Current Employee)

I have been working at Juniper Networks part-time for more than 5 years

ProsThe people, benefits, company values, room for advancement in certain area's

Consno room for advancement in my partuclar area, senior management

Advice to Senior Managementwhen you "cleaned house" on the employees, you forgot to clean up the upper management. When a company evangelizes their core values like trust and respect, they need to live it and breathe it.
